Receiving and Keeping Financial Aid

Rule 1: Apply early. Students should begin by filing the FAFSA and reviewing all published scholarship and financial aid deadlines.

Rule 2: Keep financial aid documentation up to date. Not only must application be made in time for an award to be made, but the award must be claimed by the student. The award notice provided to the student must be accepted or declined according to established deadlines. Deadlines for claiming aid are stringently observed.
